The Buffalo Bills and WR Stevie Johnson, will take on the Patriots this Sunday, and Johnson had some words for the Patriots defense.
When asked why the Bills feel they can compete against the Patriots in their opener on Sunday, Johnson did not hold back.
“Because I’m here,” he said. “I don’t think they have anybody to stop me. For real. I think we have guys in the receiver room that are as good as I am, if not better. I just have that confidence in my teammates and in myself.”
Johnson was also asked to give a scouting report of the Patriots defense, first noting that he has not played against cornerback Aqib Talib, who was picked up by New England last November.
“[He’s] long, athletic, tries to play with vision,” he said. “I have a lot of respect for Patrick Chung,” who is no longer a Patriot. I know him personally. Devin McCourty: he’s a Pro Bowl player.”
“I give a lot of credit to the Patriots. They play as one unit. … They’re aggressive. It’s going to be a test. It’s going to be a challenge,” he said. “But I still think we can take advantage of their defense. … I’ll still ride with my boys over their guys.”
